Hello Nobles!

Welcome spring and the hopeful end of covid-19. It appears that most of the parades are going to happen this year. 2021 has gotten off to a slow start but things are looking up.

Travel restrictions have been lifted and the Key West trip on April 18-22 is on schedule. I hope to see you there.

We now need to get out and sell as many gun tickets and side by side tickets as possible to make the raffle a success.

Please make sure to mark your calendars for the first quarterly meeting that will be held on 4/28/21. We are planning couples dinner before the meeting.

Remember that we all need to work on getting new Nobles into our great fraternity and mentor them. Make them feel wel- come. And if we do they will get involved.

Please check your calendar books for upcoming events. There is much fun that awaits.

It has been a long year with the pandemic and cancellation of most events so make sure to check your calendar books for upcoming activities. There is much fun in store for us all. Kim and I hope to see you all very soon!

Yours in Faith,
Bob Perrine,
2021 Potentate

Dear Nobles and Ladies,

I am hoping this n ds you and those you love in good health! It is my honor and privilege to serve as First Lady of Zem Zem Shrine this year! I am looking forward to seeing all of you very soon!

This year, my First Lady’s Project is a dual project. My project is to provide funding for wheelchairs for Shriners Hospitals for Children-Erie and to provide funding for a wheelchair accessible van for HTF, our Temple’s Zem Zem Hospital Transportation Fund. This year, Shriners Hospital for Children-Erie’s greatest need is for wheelchair funding and our Temple is in great need of a new wheelchair accessible vanto transport children to and from the hospital. Both of these needs are essential. It is very important that the children being cared for at the hospital are given the opportunities that specialized and individualized wheelchairs can provide them. It is also very important that our Nobles are able to transport the children in a safe and reliable manner. I look forward to working with all of you to help o er thesechildren independence, con dence, mobility and hope as they live their daily lives and pursue their dreams.

The Annual First Ladies Luncheon will be held at the Corinthian in downtown Sharon on Saturday, June 26th at noon. This is during Cere- monial Weekend, June 23-27. The Ceremonial festivities are being held at Mercer County Shrine Club.
